Vases with flowers can be pretty add-ons to your humble abode. It doesn’t hurt that these vases look visually interesting too.
While we were on our honeymoon, my husband and I talked about our plans for our future home and he specifically noted that I needed to have my own home office where I can do my blogging and social networking activities as well as other office stuff that I needed to do. Maybe he can also camp in when he has to check his stocks online or when he has to play some of his computer games. And today, I decided that I should scour the web for some pretty home office ideas.
Verner Panton (13 February 1926 – 5 September 1998) is considered one of Denmark’s most influential 20th-century furniture and interior designers. During his career, he created innovative, funky and futuristic designs in a variety of materials, especially plastics, and in vibrant and exotic colors. His style was very “1960s” but regained popularity at the end of the 20th century; as of 2004, Panton’s most well-known furniture models are still in production. -Wikipedia
Verner Panton in his own words:
“The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination. Most people spend their lives living in dreary, grey-beige conformity, mortally afraid of usning colours. By experimenting with lighting, colours, textiles and furniture and utilizing the latest technologies, I try to show new ways, to encourage people to use their phantasy imagination and make their surroundings more exciting”.
Here are some of his works featured in Copenhagen – Hotel Alexandra (situated right in the heart of Copenhagen by the Town Hall Square and the Tivoli Gardens):
Hans is a Danish prolific and creative furniture designer. He died in 2007 but his creative pieces are still living legacies of his talent. His famous works include: Peacock chair, Shell chair, Valet chair, Ox chair, Wishbone chair, Flag Halyard chair, The Chair, Circle chair, Papa Bear chair, Chinese chair, The Wing chair.
Wegner’s work represents his time era, and all the brilliant craftsmanship and engagement it took to create his designs, as it was a puristic depiction of the tastes, modernity, and functionality that made those decades unique. The mid-century Danish style that he made his own, made him renowned throughout the world, and made his works equally popular.
With his works he always mixed up the elegance and the amusement as he created very unique furniture, each with their own practicality and sense of humour built right into the chair.
Kenneth is a Cebu-based designer who studied industrial design at the Pratt Institute in New York. After a series of further studies and apprenticeships abroad, he returned to the Philippines in 1996 and started to manage his family’s furniture company, Interior Crafts of the Islands Inc. which is based in Cebu.
Kenneth is known for his organic and often biomorphic designs. By exploring the properties of indigenous materials such as buri, abaca, rattan, and bamboo, he’s able to come up with forms that are unexpected. Apart from exploring the natural materials themselves, Kenneth goes back to nature where he often finds his design inspirations.
